Asthma and Respiratory Support

Here to help you with your asthma check up

Asthma and Respiratory Support
 

If you live with asthma or COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease), we can offer free confidential advice on how to control your symptoms and how you can get the most out of your medicines.

As well as attending your annual review with your GP or a nurse, we can also help you with an asthma check up. Whether you need a helping hand managing your medication or want to find out what could be triggering your symptoms, we can provide expert advice and product recommendations to suit you.

Have you taken our asthma test?

You can take our Asthma Control Test™ or COPD Assessment Test online to find out how well you are managing your condition or how much it is impacting your daily life. Once you have your results you can share them with one of our pharmacists or your healthcare professional. Your control test results will help us determine how well you have managed your medicines during the past four weeks and identify whether you would benefit from further advice.

You can also come into store for an asthma breathing test, where we can check your inhaler technique with a device called an In-check Dial. Depending on the outcomes of these tests, we may want to see you again to give you extra support or offer effect products that you could help. Just another way that we can help you control your asthma or COPD.

Products to use alongside your asthma medications

We have a range of products that you can use alongside your prescribed asthma or COPD medications, that can help manage your condition and its symptoms.
